What's great about it
If you need a power packed, detox friendly and refreshing icy cold drink, then my strawberry mylk hits the spot. Strawberries are low in calories, high in antioxidants and rich in vitamin C, which helps to keep the skin firm by aiding collagen production. Collagen gives strength and structure to your skin and is vital for elasticity and firmness. This recipe is from my new cookbook Purely Delicious.
2 cups almond mylk or cashew mylk
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon honey or a little stevia
ice to blend
1. Combine all the ingredients into a high performance blender.
2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
3. Serve immediately and enjoy.
Notes and Inspiration
Almond mylk is a delicious lactose free alternative to traditional dairy. It's packed with essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc to help your body repair as well as support the body’s immune system. Almond mylk and other nut mylks are also a good source of protein, the main function of protein is to build and repair, as well as sustain lean muscle.
Use 1 cup cultured natural yoghurt in place of mylk and create a delicious strawberry lassi. Add extra honey to sweeten.
Add a small handful of raw cashew nuts before blending to make your strawberry mylk creamy and delicious.
Pump up the protein and add 2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Protein.
